Motivation through the Design of Work: Test of a Theory. Organizational Behavior and Human Performance,
, 1976
"... A model is proposed that specifies the conditions under which individuals will become internally motivated to perform effectively on their jobs. The model focuses on the interaction among three classes of variables: (a) the psychological states of employees that must be present for internally motiv ..."

advocate job rotation claim that work motivation can be kept reasonably high by rotating individuals through several different jobs, even though each of the jobs would become monotonous and boring if one were to remain on it for a long period of time. If future research can identify ways to maintain
Statistical Rate Monotonic Scheduling
 In 19th IEEE RealTime Systems Symposium
, 1998
"... Statistical Rate Monotonic Scheduling (SRMS) is a generalization of the classical RMS results of Liu and Layland [LL73] for periodic tasks with highly variable execution times and statistical QoS requirements. The main tenet of SRMS is that the variability in task resource requirements could be smoo ..."

WHAT MAKES JOBS MONOTONOUS AND BORING?
"... Direct observations of the jobs of 370 workers were used to explain perceptionsof monotony and feelings of boredom associated with work. Of the several observational measures of task characteristics that were constructed, the most efficient predictOr of monotony and boredom was the number of times ..."

Scheduling Parallel Jobs with Monotone Speedup
, 2005
"... We consider a scheduling problem where a set of jobs is apriori distributed over parallel machines. The processing time of any job is dependent on the usage of a discrete renewable resource, e.g. personnel. An amount of k units of that resource can be allocated to the jobs at any time, and the more ..."

Modified RateMonotonic Algorithm for Scheduling Periodic Jobs with Deferred Deadlines
 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
, 1993
"... The deadline of a request is the time instant at which its execution must complete. The deadline of the request in any period of a job with deferred deadline is some time instant after the end of the period. This paper describes a semistatic, prioritydriven algorithm for scheduling periodic jobs w ..."

with deferred deadlines: each job is assigned two priorities, the higher one for old requests and the lower one for the current request. This algorithm is called the modified ratemonotonic algorithm and is based on the wellknown ratemonotonic algorithm. We show that the modified ratemonotonic algorithm
ResourceMonotonicity for House Allocation Problems
 INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF GAME THEORY
, 2004
"... We study a simple model of assigning indivisible objects (e.g., houses, jobs, offices, etc.) to agents. Each agent receives at most one object and monetary compensations are not possible. We completely describe all rules satisfying efficiency, independence of irrelevant objects, and resourcemonoton ..."

Truthful mechanism design for multidimensional scheduling via cycle monotonicity
 In Proceedings 8th ACM Conference on Electronic Commerce (EC
, 2007
"... We consider the problem of makespan minimization on m unrelated machines in the context of algorithmic mechanism design, where the machines are the strategic players. This is a multidimensional scheduling domain, and the only known positive results for makespan minimization in such a domain are O(m) ..."

(m)approximation truthful mechanisms [22, 20]. We study a wellmotivated special case of this problem, where the processing time of a job on each machine may either be “low ” or “high”, and the low and high values are public and jobdependent. This preserves the multidimensionality of the domain, and generalizes
Scheduling with Setup Costs and Monotone Penalties
"... We consider single processor preemptive scheduling with jobdependent setup times. In this model, a jobdependent setup time is incurred when a job is started for the first time, and each time it is restarted after preemption. This model is a common generalization of preemptive scheduling, and actua ..."

Semantic matchmaking as nonmonotonic reasoning: A description logic approach
 J. OF ARTIFICIAL INTELL. RES
, 2007

Matchmaking arises when supply and demand meet in an electronic marketplace, or when agents search for a web service to perform some task, or even when recruiting agencies match curricula and job profiles. In such open environments, the objective of a matchmaking process is to discover best availab ..."

Testing for Monotonicity of the Reservation Wage Function
, 2012
"... This paper develops and implements a test for monotonicity of the regression function under endogeneity. The testing framework is applied to study the monotonicity of the reservation wage as a function of elapsed unemployment duration. The paper extends the existing literature in two directions: fro ..."

Using a standard job search model, it is shown that monotonicity of the reservation wage function, a restriction imposed by several empirical studies, only holds under certain (rather restrictive) conditions on the variables in the model. The test from above
